    Hello

    This was taken on Sunday at Brimham Rocks in North Yorkshire, UK

    1000759blvs1024.

    I thought it would suit monochrome (even this slightly melodramatic treatment).
    Now I think I should have cropped the bottom and RHS to lose the small bush. Would be grateful to hear people's views on that

    Thanks
    Paul

    Thanks for sharing the image with us. I agree that the small bush is distracting - rather than crop, I'd consider cloning it out, with a bit of care it should be do-able. I'd also boost the contrast a bit to give the image more impact.

    Nice to meet someone on here from my part of the world.:clap2:

    I would not want to lose too much of the rocks below the tree - doesn't help with this image but I wonder if you could have changed your angle slightly so the lower bush wasn't in the frame but you still had a good line on the rocks/tree/sky?

    Thanks for your comments.

    I honestly thought I'd almost overdone the contrast so your comment is very interesting -- looking again at the levels I see there is still some way I can safely go.

    I agree about the angle. It was a bit of a grab shot, and if I had taken a couple of paces to my right I could have moved the smaller bush out of frame.

    Will know better next time...!
